Okay, I've read some of the posts here from people experiencing that the FB Share button is buggy. Others have suggested that it's FB's fault as they had "deprecated" this social tool (weird!).
While I don't understand why FB would think that a LIKE or RECOMMEND functionality is sufficient enough to abandon the SHARE (which allows a personalized description), I really understand even less why the FB SHARE button in my Digg Digg installation actually DOES turn up in the Floating Bar...but ONLY when I have it set as 'none' (disabled) in the
- Normal Display
Not only that, the FB Share button works when it's there! Sharing a post using it works. It gets published. And the count increases!
I was unable to find official statements by FB as to what the reason for eliminating the FB SHARE as a social plugin is, but I wonder why it DOES still work, and why the DIGG DIGG implementation works in such a weird way?
When people share links on FB, does the deprecation of the FB Share button functionality mean that people are manually copy pasting those links onto FB? That's so unproductive. Any opinions, especially in relation to Digg Digg?
